I stayed at the Cristal for 4 nights in February for a business trip. The hotel is incredibly convenient to both tourist attractions and the #1 metro line (George V stop). The metro stop is very important for business travelers commuting to the La Defense CBD, who don't want to stay in La Defense.
The hotel is very clean and neat. I can't say enough about the staff and how helpful and friendly they were. While my French is not so good, they made every effort to communicate in English when possible. Additionally, I left my suit jacket in the closet upon departure. They kindly wrapped it and mailed it to me (for 19euros).
The 2 negative things i would say are that the climate control system in the room sucks. It is either on or off, and since it was well below freezing outside the room was like a furnace. Also, if travelling with your wife, don't expect her to be "wow'd" by the accommodations. While nice and very, very clean, it does lack luxury.
I would certainly recommend this hotel and would stay there again.More
